The Kowloon Bay is partly an industrial cum commercialarea and partly an area for residential purposes. Here are some shots taken this morning of the industrial and commercialbuildings there.

1. A refuse transfer loading station.

This is a big refuse collection point where refuse collection vehicles deliver solid wastes to forcompressed and subsequently mass delivery toto the landfill sites and composting plants for final disposal. It saves the time ofthe special vehiclestravelling to and fro the landfill sites which are usually faraway in the countryside. In a sense, it alsosave fuel.





2

Hong Kong International Trade and Exhibition Centre. This is is much small in scale compared to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhbition Centre on Hong Kong Island.



3

Another view of it from the back





4

The tortoise-like monster structure is the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on Hong Kong Island. This photo the part that protrudes to the Victoria Harbour.



5

The prohibited area of the former Kai Tak International Airport, which has been relocated to Chek Lap Kok on Lantau Island. The huge piece of land here will be for commercial and residential purposes and a big ocean liner berth will be built somewhere on this piece of land to boost tourism.



6 On the far side of this picture is the Lion Rock. The buildings at the foot of the range of hills there are mainly residential ones. Few industrial activities are carried out there and the locality there is called Kowloon Central. The position I took this shot is called theKowloon East which is mainly for industrial and commercial purposes.



7

Flyover walkways are everywhere in the Kowloon East where traffic has to be fast to avoid traffic congestion fromheavy loading and unloading activities in the industrial area.

A factory building built by the Housing Authority to provide space for thriving local industries.





9

More commercial buildings are built nowadays than the industrial ones thatwere more popular in the 60s and 70s when most of the industrial activities were carriedlocally either inthe KowloonEast and the Kowloon West.





Thanks for viewing. Peter

It's a pleasure, Peter. Great colours and freedom from distorsion. A 32 bit monitor shows 14. 6 million colours. In reality they are infinite. Finite use of infinite means
